Teddy Bear - Artist - Peggy Fleming - Pleasant Ridge Collection, Des Moines, Iowa

About Pleasant Ridge

The Pleasant Ridge Collection is a world of little mohair and alpaca teddy bears and their friends - foxes, bunnies, hedgehogs, raccoons, cats and dogs, all designed and made by award winning artist Peggy Fleming. Peggy also specializes in needlefelted Santas and reindeer. Since this avocation is now secondary to her full time job, only a limited number of pieces is available each year. If you'd like to be on the mailing list for new pieces, please email us.

Teddy Bear Reunion in the Heartland - New Name, New Game

The Clarion Chamber of Commerce decided it must cancel the Teddy Bear Reunion in the Heartland convention planned for June 11-14, 2015 bringing the days of that magical convention to an end. We'll carry on the tradition with a new pair of shows for the Des Moines area. Renamed and reimagined, Prim Folk Fest brings you an exciting new show in the Greater Des Moines area which will feature a blend of artist made teddy bears, dolls, and folk art on June 17, 2017. October 20 and 21, we'll bring you an all-teddy bear show! Follow the link to learn more.

In memory of my friend, teddy bear artist Brenda Hallaway.
